In an ironic twist, I spend most of my life trying to get rid of unwanted facial hair (you don’t even want to see what my real eyebrow looks like), and creating an instant beard has just become the latest Internet rage.

You’re an Internet sensation and have a new profile picture. Buzzfeed, my number one fun time wasting site, collected up their Top 25 best cat bearding photos.
